Project Lyttelton and the Canterbury Earthquakes

The Shaken Heart

Earthquake stories from the heart of Lyttelton

Bettina Evans interviewed over 30 Lytteltonians about their September and February earthquake experiences. Included is a brief history of the heart- stitching which happened spontaneously in Lyttelton after the February earthquake on the badly damaged main street. The booklet also contains photos of Lyttelton before and after the earthquakes, culminating in a few images showing the first signs of rebuild and hope.

Copies no longer are available.
